Everton agree first-team loan exit after 2 weeks of talks with Euro club

Everton have reached an agreement in principle with Besiktas for the one-season loan of midfielder Dele Alli after two weeks of talks, according to The Mirror.

The Toffees signed Dele on a first free transfer from Tottenham in January, with clauses which could see the club paid up to £40million based on performance-related bonuses.

But the 26-year-old is now set to leave on loan seven months later, with Everton paying nothing for him, after Frank Lampard gave the go-ahead for the move.

Everton have agreed to let him go, but the final decision rests with the player who wants regular first-team football but does not want to take a pay cut from his £100,000-a-week wage.

Spurs are set to receive £10m once Dele makes 20 appearances for the Toffees. He has currently made 13, all but one substitute with no goals or assists to his name.

Disaster

The move was nothing short of a disaster from start to finish, despite all the positive feedback when the deal was announced earlier this year.

A new environment away from Tottenham was expected to be a game-changer for Dele, who has plenty of England caps but none since 2019.

However, all he did was raise further questions about his commitment as he couldn’t step into an Everton side that were struggling hard against relegation last season without their top striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin. available to provide them with goals.

This season he has started again on the bench in the same scenario and it looks like Lampard, who once described him as one of the best in the world in his position, has had enough and is ready to cut ties to save money. club money. and rely on other members of his team instead.
